  • Bloodsport 3…The Trials of Judge Kavanaugh

    Filed under Economy, Open thread, Politics at October 3rd, 2018 - 10:14 pm

    When we last left our intrepid hero, his enemy’s plans and stories were all falling apart as we move closer to the thrilling conclusion!

    The saga continues.

    Also: the boys over at ADP say that there were 230,000 jobs added last quarter (ADP does a lot of companies payrolls, so they are pretty accurate about this topic). The economists predicted 180k. also: Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell cited a “remarkably positive outlook” for a U.S. economy enjoying both low unemployment and inflation. A reporter asked Powell after last week’s Fed meeting whether the outlook was “too good to be true,” and he said it was “a reasonable question.”

    Can this last? Sure it can, America is being rebuilt one factory and machine shop and wellhead at a time. American industries were gutted from 1980’s onward now all of this has to be rebuilt. I tried to beat this into the heads of our Nevertrumpers, but they could not see the situation right i front of their wannabe elitists noses. Obama and Bush and Clinton and Bush Sr did Trump sort of a favor. They destroyed the mightiest economy in the history of the world for their globalist masters and now it has to be rebuilt. This is a true joy to watch. Those jobs aren’t coming back? really? They aren’t? ummmhmmm.

      I DO see the Cassandra’s moaning about a debt bomb. I think $131 trillion or something. Not to be scoffed at certainly.

      My concern is not that so much, it’s that as we grow, we’ll need customers. Europe is becoming more and more moribund. If the Brits could figure out how to add and subtract, Brexit would have been a done deal a year ago and Brussels would look like Slovakia.

      Poland is a bright spot. As is Hungary

      There are a lot of things we don’t make anymore because of policies and regulations. Make those more rational, and more of that returns to the US. Won’t be armies of minimum wage slaves making them but automated assembly processes that keep the prices competitive.

      I keep hearing from the libs that every time there’s a crash, a Republican’s in office, and every recovery is because of liberal policies. Great Depression? Hoover’s fault. FDR saved America. Bush II? Worst economy ever. Obama? Miracle worker!

      How do you argue against this?

      facts. The Great Depression was global and actually began with agriculture failure in South American.

      World War II saved the American economy.

      etc. etc.

      The facts your lib friends are stating are neither correlations nor causation. They do not exist in a vacuum w/o context.

      If I remember reading this story correctly, Christina Ford )retired FBI agent) stated she was in the same town (or house) as her BFF, Monica McClean, when she wrote her letter to DiFi. And, Christina said last Thursday, she didn’t know how to submit her letter to the FBI, after she wrote it.

      Horseshit.

      Ask what, specifically, those “miracle workers” (especially Obama) did to “save America.”

      Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke on the Senate floor Wednesday night and filed cloture to end debate on Kavanaugh’s nomination. Through that process, a procedural vote will take place Friday, followed by a confirmation vote at some point Saturday.

      FDR’s policies were shown to have deepened and lengthened the depression. He was no miracle worker. Obama? Remember when the best we could hope for was 2% GDP growth as the new norm and those jobs that weren’t coming back. Economy sort of recovered despite Obama’s policies, not because of them.

      “During the time that the FBI was putting — that DOJ and FBI were putting together the FISA (surveillance warrant) during the time prior to the election — there was another source giving information directly to the FBI, which we found the source to be pretty explosive,” said Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio.

      Meadows and Jordan would not elaborate on the source, or answer questions about whether the source was a reporter. They did stress that the source who provided information to the FBI’s Russia case was not previously known to congressional investigators.

      due to an auto accident in 1982 and an autoimmune disorder that has resulted in liver cirrhosis, I’ve lost all my teeth. Complete implant replacement. Not to mention that a few got knocked out when one of my dogs when after a squirrel and I face planted on the sidewalk and the other knocked a few more out when she had a seizure and head-butted me.

      Russia collusion bombshell: DNC lawyers met with FBI on dossier before surveillance warrant

      Congressional investigators have confirmed that a top FBI official met with Democratic Party lawyers to talk about allegations of Donald Trump-Russia collusion weeks before the 2016 election, and before the bureau secured a search warrant targeting Trump’s campaign.

      Former FBI general counsel James Baker met during the 2016 season with at least one attorney from Perkins Coie, the Democratic National Committee’s private law firm.

      That’s the firm used by the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign to secretly pay research firm Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence operative, to compile a dossier of uncorroborated raw intelligence alleging Trump and Moscow were colluding to hijack the presidential election.

      @ yenta-fada:

      Christine Ford had to know she wasn’t a credible witness regarding her OWN behavior. She’s crazy in the most mean girl way. Not too
      concerned about the destruction she causes in the lives of others. Perhaps that’s why she doesn’t have family at these hearings. They know how toxic she is.

      Because she grew up in so much privilege, she is accustomed to getting away with bad behavior & having it covered up.

      Grassley’s statement on FBI report:

      https://www.chicksonright.com/blog/2018/10/04/grassley-releases-a-hyuuuuge-statement-on-the-fbis-report/

      Democrats, who had said a week was sufficient, are probably already planning their attack. Most significant for me is Ford’s attorneys squawking that the FBI didn’t interview her (also their convenient reason for keeping the therapist’s notes from the committee, as if one had anything to do with the other). Sound familiar? “She won’t testify until there’s an FBI investigation!”

      They WANT the FBI to interview their client? Are they insane? This is tantamount to malpractice. You NEVER willingly expose your client to the jeopardy of criminal charges if you can possibly avoid it. They had several hours of her testimony. Do Katz, et al., really want the FBI to sit their client down and interview her, with the possiblity that she forgets what her “line” is supposed to be and then states something different. That’s lying to the FBI, the process crime that Michael Flynn was charged with. And for those libs that say “this isn’t with regard to a criminal investigation” – neither was Flynn’s. He thought the FBI was only seeking information.

      @ coldwarrior:

      Word on Twitter is that Manchin is a yes, but I’ll believe it when I see it. I’ll be curious to see what those Democrat Senators who are falling behind in the polls in the Red states do, especially in North Dakota, Indiana and Tennessee.

      And I can’t figure out how Murkowsky thinks she can run for re-election in Alaska if she votes no on Kavanugh. I’d like to think she was just “performing” for the cameras and will be a yes. I wonder if the GOP leadership had a Come to Jesus meeting with Flake and told him outright that if he voted no on Kavanaugh he was finished in GOP politics and he better hope the Democrats want him to run for THEIR nomination in 2020.

      I won’t be home when the vote is going on. I’ll cross my fingers and tune in here and hope for the best, like I did with the 2016 election. Oh, and by the way, my little sis stopped by to read Sunday’s screed and she thinks we’re all GREAT!

      You know, the one good thing about the idiot Congress continuing to foul up DC is that they aren’t in their districts campaigning, which is giving their challengers lots of time to go out in the community and tell them they will lose the good economy if the Dems retake power.

      no. He’s a crook. His niece/daughter (niece I think) heads up the pharma that makes Epi-pen which is HIDEOUSLY EXPENSIVE. And there was some patent issue that precluded other mgfrs re-engineering it. Manchin appointed his wife to some board or other that MANDATED all schools in the state had to have 2 of the things.

      This is a good article on tariffs and how they can and usually do work for some things (not applicable to everything, I think). It pretty much explains my understanding better than I can (and if I’m wrong, CW will correct, I’m sure).

      And it’s why I think Ben Shapiro isn’t as smart as he thinks he is

      For example, suppose President Trump were to impose a 10 percent tariff on all Chinese toasters.

      Black & Decker makes toasters in China. These toasters sell for $60 in American stores. That’s the retail price. Are tariffs imposed on retail prices? No. This means that the price of toasters will not rise by 10 percent—$66 toasters are a media-concocted boogeyman.

      So just how much would this hypothetical tariff increase the price of toasters?

      American stores buy their toasters from Chinese manufacturers. But because of China’s (intentionally) convoluted regulatory framework, they often buy them via middlemen located in Hong Kong, Singapore, or Taiwan. These middlemen charge somewhere in the neighborhood of $14 per toaster.

      And of course these middlemen don’t work for free: they buy the toasters directly from Chinese factories for $7 per toaster. This is the first sale price, and tariffs are calculated on this figure. Thus the tariff charged on a Black & Decker toaster that retails for $60 works out to just 70 cents.

      American consumers don’t pay 10 percent more for toasters—they pay just 1.15 percent more. And that’s assuming Black & Decker doesn’t simply source its toasters from one of China’s competitors, in which case consumers may not see any prices increase whatsoever.

      Katz is an effing walking malpractice suit. She had all her answers ready. If the FBI HAD requested to interview her client, you can bet your bottom dollar her response would have been that they had hours of her testimony on the record and there was no need to interview her. Instead, FBI says they will NOT be interviewing her and she uses that as an excuse to withhold therapist’s notes requested by Committee and THEN make ludicrous demand FBI interview her client, KNOWING that they’ve completed it.

      Now says corroborative witness is available. Oh, really? Did Ford suddenly remember someone? This woman is literally asking for an investigation into perjury.

      @ coldwarrior:

      this can be illustrated by my choice in cars:

      i have owned merceds-benzs for 26 year. whoa! colwarrior is loaded! no, no he isnt. i have owned 2 MBs in that time, the first was a mid 80’s 300 Turbo Diesel wagon (375k on the clock when i drove it to the junk yard in 2008, it only had 3rd gear left). i then went to the dealership and got a used 2003 MB e320 wagon…it now is pushing 200k. i have never had to replace anything other than normal wear parts and normal maintenance on either.

      2 cars in 26 year? there is nothing from detroit big 3 that i am interested in buying because they aren’t as reliable and are not built like an MB. i don’t want a new car every few years.

      so now, jeeze…i’m looking for a new vehicle…but how to buy american? i’m probably going to get a MB M-class, built in Alabama. I can afford a certified used with 20-30k on it and will probably give it to the Puti in 6 years when she is ready to drive.

      *her ready to drive? the horror*

      in the long run, because of the way MB builds cars, i will spend less money than if i buy another brand. why can’t big three do this?

      Privacy group seeks last-minute Brett Kavanaugh delay, citing ‘extraordinary’ new disclosure

      A prominent privacy rights organization says senators must delay confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh until after they review newly identified documents on his role establishing Bush-era surveillance programs.

      The Electronic Privacy Information Center requested the last-minute delay in a Wednesday night letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., after being told of the existence of unreleased documents held by the National Archives.

      McConnell invoked cloture on Kavanaugh’s nomination at about the same time, setting in motion a possible confirmation vote this weekend, after the FBI reviewed sexual assault claims against the judge.

      EPIC president Marc Rotenberg told the Washington Examiner that the group received a communication from the National Archives around 5 p.m. on Wednesday indicating that Kavanaugh may have misled senators about his role in post-9/11 surveillance programs.

      I knew Marc back in the day, he used to be sane

      ROTFLMAO… I am going to presume that the two of you are serious. Your “White” privilege is clearly showing. Now, those of us who live in blue collar America, we know all about Speed Queen. Mostly on a count of, Speed Queen made themselves famous and one of the largest washing machine companies in America by producing Laundromat washing machines.

      Think coin operated washing machine or dryer, and you are thinking about a Speed Queen. My brother’s and I have been buying speed queens for decades. We actually started out buying used laundromat machines that had been reconditioned. These are machines designed not to wash/dry 8 loads a week for 25 years, but 24 loads a day for 10 years.

      I’ve had several that still had the coin slots on them. They just had the coin box and lock removed. By youngest brother, whom I live with now, is still grumbling about his wife getting rib of the brand new Speed Queen Washer dryer set he got her 20 years ago because they was 10 years old, not because they didn’t, but because they were “To old”.

      He;s been through 3 washer/dryer sets since then. Every time she starts complaining about the new washer or dryer, he starts cussing like a sailor and walks away on her.

      Hillary Clinton goes to a gifted-student primary school in New York to talk about the world. After her talk she offers question time.

      One little boy puts up his hand. Hillary asks him what his name is. “Kenneth,” he says.

      “And what is your question, Kenneth?” she asks.

      “I have three questions,” he says.

      “First — whatever happened in Benghazi?

      “Second — why would you run for president if you are not capable of handling two e-mail accounts?

      “And, third — whatever happened to the missing six billion dollars while you were Secretary of State?”

      Just then the bell rings for recess. Hillary informs the kiddies that they will continue after recess.

      When they resume Hillary says, “Okay, where were we? Oh, that’s right, question time. Who has a question?”

      A different boy — little Johnny — puts his hand up.

      Hillary points to him and asks him what his name is.

      “Johnny,” he says.

      “And what is your question, Johnny?” she asks.

      “I have five questions,” he says.

      “First — whatever happened in Benghazi?

      “Second — why would you run for president if you are not capable of handling two e-mail accounts?

      “Third — whatever happened to the missing six billion dollars while you were Secretary of State?

      “Fourth — why did the recess bell go off 20 minutes early?

      Totally off topic but one thing has me questioning the Presidential Alert test.

      Yep, I know many people said ” I turned off my phone deliberately so I would not get Trump texting me! ”

      However according to Twitter many people did not get the alert. I didn’t but the radio in the office did.

      Now, if this was a true test I think the testers should be asking people who did not get the alert to come forward so the reasons the ” test ” failed can be discovered.

      I would have given this information to them.

      Phone Number 979 436 xxxx
      Android 6.0.1
      Phone ZTE Z837VL
      ZIP code when test transmitted 77489

      And if they asked for the address in that ZIP code they could determine the most likely cell tower my phone was talking to.

      So, in my expert and professional opinion this “test” was a complete waste of money and resources.

      Christine Ford legal team writes to FBI still wanting bureau to interview the polygrapher, Ford’s husband, and people, including Monica McLean, who say Ford told them about Kavanaugh at various times from 2013 to 2018.

      The letter is at the link. What BS. Nobody can corroborate anything because whatever did or did not happen, it was back in the 80s.

      1997 Ford F-150. Almost 21 years old when I replaced it with my 2018 Dodge Ram. Not because the F-150 was falling apart — Federalist Jr is now driving it but because the Chrysler mini-van he was driving was beginning to scare me maintenance-wise.

      Yep, gotta drive what fits your lifestyle. The pickup fits mine — woodworking, metalworking, and house stuff on weekends. We had a Sequoia for the family stuff — almost made 300K miles before being totaled, Mrs. Federalist is still really mad about that. SUV doesn’t fit out lifestyle anymore, we don’t need an 8 passenger vehicle, so she now also has a pickup — Extended cab so we can carry up to 5 people if needed and a cargo bed so she can do stuff for the rental house if she needs to without borrowing mine. … and lots of cargo space for traveling.

      As the Kavanaugh vote is currently planned for Saturday, probably late, and since CW has the very fun NCAA thread up during the day, I imagine judging form the comments I’m seeing on Sunday that people aren’t all that interested in the sports angle anymore and would just rather have an open thread and a short essay to either comment on, etc. It looks like pretty much all of us have walked away from the NFL, so I could comment on Golf and NASCAR, but then those are two sports that don’t exactly rivet you to the living room couch.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if they were already on the receiving end of bullying NOW. Liberal dickheads masquerading as parents would on doubt have said “I don’t want you talking to the Kavanaugh girls – their daddy is a rapist.” I imagine they are being home tutored for the time being.

      Some hack in The New Yorker has snotted that Kavanaugh has “weaponized” male crying. Jeez Louise – the man was talking about the prayers being said by his little girl. I can only imagine the holy hell those two little angels have gone through in the past month. And I’m sure one of their questions had to have been “why are they saying this about you, Daddy?”

      Mark Levin said it better than anyone. He would NEVER forgive the Senate Democrats for taking a good man, with a distinguished career, who had always wished “none harm” and reduced him to the point of tears on a national stage.

      must be your birthday

      Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley sent a letter to Dr. Ford’s legal team late Thursday night asking for all of their communications with specific Democratic senators, the alleged witnesses to her getting assaulted, as well as the other alleged victims.

      Grassley specifically asked for all direct or indirect communications between Ford or her legal team and:

      “(1) U.S. Senators or their staffs, particularly the offices of Senators Feinstein and Hirono, other than your communications with me and my staff in preparation for the September 27 hearing; (2) the alleged witnesses identified by Dr. Ford (Leland Keyser, Mark Judge, and Patrick “P.J.” Smyth); and (3) Debbie Ramirez, Julie Swetnick, or their representatives.”

      The chairman did not specify what spurred this request. However, the Wall Street Journal may have uncovered a possible reason for it.

      The WSJ reported on Thursday night that Keyser, Ford’s life long friend, was pressured to revisit her initial statement. She reportedly accused another one of Ford’s friends, Monica McLean, who is a retired FBI agent, of applying said pressure.

      McLean reportedly told Keyser that the Republicans would use her sworn statement to discredit Dr. Ford.

      In law, there are several catgories of witnesses: a “corroborating” witness is one who would have first-hand knowledge of an event, thereby providing corroboration for the allegation; there is the “exculpatory” or “alibi” witness that provides evidence that exonerates the accused in a credible fashion; and of course, there are “character” witnesses, who….the court only wants to hear from them at sentencing.

      McLean was tampering with on of Kavanaugh’s “exculpatory” witnesses.

      hadn’t thought of this one

      <emI want Hirono exposed. Been asking people to dig for over a week. Ford interned at University of Hawaii MANOA. The "Manoa" connection was scrubbed from the internet. Hirono went there years earlier. Sans Souci Beach is where Ford stayed – closest university is Manoa.

      so if the allegation about McLean is true, she’s looking at a witness tampering charge

      @ eaglesoars:

      Yes she is. And from what I can tell, Leland Keyser’s friends and family want nothing more than to drop kick Ford and McLean over the Washington Monument, where they can both land on Debbie Katz.


    176. 182 | October 5, 2018 11:03 am

      Well, I don’t know how to interpret this: Murkowski just voted “no” on cloture to Kavanaugh’s nomination.

      Which, frankly, gives her cover. If Collins and Flake both vote Yes on the nomination and Manchin votes yes, she can vote “no” and be a hero to the liberals.

      UPDATE: Manchin voted YES on cloture. So perhaps Murkowski will enjoy her role as “the cheese stands alone.” Personally, I hope McConnell pays her back by giving her bulls**t committee assignments come January.

      She’s never won by a majority in Alaska, I don’t know enough about the politics there to really connect dots. But it doesn’t impress me as a ‘blue’ state.

      Solid Red as far as I know – maybe not in double digits for Trump like West Virginia and North Dakota. Murkowski won her seat initially by running as a sore loser and invoking her father’s name when she lost the Republican nomination. I can’t remember if she ran as a Republican for re-election (probably) but if she “flakes” on this vote, I can only guess she’s hoping the voters will forget about it by the next time she has to run.

      Yeah, no. Check the symbol of the party, there, Lisa with an “S”.

      From comments at Legal Insurrection.

      Wonder if Senate Democrats are regretting pushing for that whole FBI investigation at this point. If not, after they read Senator Grassley’s letter they should be, especially Senators Dianne Feinstein and Mazie Hirono.

      The whole letter is really good (unless you’re Ford’s attorneys), but pay special attention to the last paragraph:

      He wrote, ‘I urge you once again, now for the third time in writing, to turn over therapy notes … ‘ which is no surprise but HERE’S where it gets interesting … ‘please turn over records and descriptions of direct or indirect communications between Dr. Ford or her representatives and any of the following: (1) U.S. Senators or their staffs, PARTICULARLY THE OFFICES OF SENATORS FEINSTEIN AND HIRONO.’

      And I was wrong – Trump won Alaska by 15%. She’s toast in the next election. I hope Sarah Palin runs.

    189. 196 | October 5, 2018 11:56 am

      I’ve always wondered if Feinstein got the head’s up this letter was coming but had it delivered via Eshoo to make it look more “civic duty-ish”

      I’m very curious as to what was scrubbed from her social media accounts. I thought someone managed to grab a screenshot from last year where she says “someone ought to accuse Gorsich of rape.”
